Taiwan Trip 1 : Xiangshan Hiking Trail

Taipei 101 from Xiangshan Hiking Trail

My Taiwan trip blog is now on the last day of the trip. Because I hadn’t taken enough Taipei 101 photos. I decided to go to Xiangshan or Elephant Mountain to take photos of it.

Xiangshan Station Exit 2

To go to there. I took the MRT to Xiangshan Station and used exit 2.

Xinyi Road

I walked along the street beside Xiangshan Park and turned left at the intersection. Then I went all the way to the building pictured above and turn right.

Followed the way and I found the entry point of Xiangshan Hiking Trail. It’s a good idea to prepare yourself, food, beverage and go to the toilet first.

There are 2 routes to choose from. One is Xiangshan Beixingbao Temple Trail which leads us to the famous photo point giant rocks. Another is Yoshiantian Trail. It’s curtain that I chose the first route.

It took me about 15 minutes to reach the first view point.

Taipei 101 from Zhongshan

The view of Taipei 101 here is good enough but I wanted more. So I continued walking to the top.

I continued walking on more steep stairs for about 10 minutes. During walking, I was asked by Taiwanese if I could still going to the top.

Finally I saw the Six Giant Rocks.
